Lou Reed reviewed Kanye’s new album and loved it

louLou Reed reviewed Kanye West’s new album Yeezus at length (yes really) on a site called Talkhouse. The review had been down due to internet overload but it appears to be back up now. From the review:

Very often, he’ll have this very monotonous section going and then, suddenly —”BAP! BAP! BAP! BAP!” — he disrupts the whole thing and we’re on to something new that’s absolutely incredible. That’s architecture, that’s structure — this guy is seriously smart. He keeps unbalancing you. He’ll pile on all this sound and then suddenly pull it away, all the way to complete silence, and then there’s a scream or a beautiful melody, right there in your face. That’s what I call a sucker punch.
